These days it appears that there is a shift in the political landscape. These days there seems to be a focus on what people want and the American people are starting to stand up for themselves. We often hear about what the politician is will to be for the people but rarely does that translate into anything relevant or worth while. The truth is that most of the politicians say they are there to help but they are more interested in keeping their job then they are about doing what’s right and what is in the best interest of the people. It’s the way the political system works that makes it tough for the newly appointed politician to do their job.
For instance once a politician gets into office they must think about some things as it relates to their job. There are usually in their office because their political party went to bat for them. Now their first day in office the idea of funding the new childrens hospital is coming up. There is a lot of money that could go to the hospital and it would help a lot of people. However there are people in the party who want that land to go to a commercial real estate developer because they have been generous to those in the party. So now while it would make more sense to have the hospital they have to now it would make sense to keep their party and it’s biggest supporters happy. This is how you keep your job. It’s the way the machine works and it’s a sad reality but a reality none the less.
